Video Guide


The Sheikah Sensor will guide you to the peak of the Hebra East Summit. However, this shrine is located just below. Drop off the peak to the west and examining the area around the peak at the base. There are some large ice blocks that are block the entrance to a cave. You will need to burn these ice blocks and you can do so with some fire. You can start a nearby fire with some Wood and Flint, and then use that to burn down the ice. If you have Fire Arrows, that works, or any flame based weapon. Bombs also work, but are a bit slower.

The actual shrine is a Major Test of Strength shrine. Given its location, it is very likely that this is not the first time you’ve done a test of strength shrine, and perhaps not the first time you’ve done a major one either. There is a Guardian Scout and he is very powerful. It will take quite a few hits to take him down, so be sure you have some powerful weapons. Early on in the battle, try to perform some Perfect Dodges, followed by flurry rushes to do maximum damage.

When the guardian leaps back to perform his massive spin attack, there are no walls to hide behind in this shrine. However, we can make walls as the ground is water. Use Cryonis to create some ice blocks that separate the space between you and the Guardian Scout. He will come crashing into them, leaving him vulnerable for a few moments.

As always, when the guardian is low on energy, it will start using its blue laser attack, creating a circle around it. You can shoot its eye directly with an arrow to stun the guardian. If you want to try to get close, use the updraft and glide right next to the guardian.

In its final attack, it will charge and shoot four consecutive lasers. Just keep on the run and when he is recharging, run up and deliver a number of sword slashes. When the Guardian Scout has been defeated, open up the treasure chest ahead and get a Royal Claymore. Speak with the monk, Goma Asaagh. He will reward you with a Spirit Orb.
